This booklet is an introduction to my personal interpretation of the chakra system. It has to do with my  philosophical counseling practice, and during the text you can find links to other articles and books, which explains further what this booklet only briefly mentions. Philosophical counseling with me is about the spiritual practice in itself, a journey which I describe as mythos-logos-mythos. You start out in the mythic life, or magical thinking, are using philosophy as a navigator (logos,...

In this booklet I will describe the art of pilgrimage seen in the light of the pilgrimage narrative in J.R.R. Tolkien´s The Lord of the Ring. I will hereafter outline a metaphysics of pilgrimage, and describe that on a pilgrimage you engage in a process og waking up to this metaphysics. I will show how such an awakening process is mirrored in all mythologies. I will do this by seeing pilgrimage in relation to Joseph Campbell´s monomyth about the Hero´s Journey. Finally, I will show that we...

The Peter Pan Project is about rediscovering the child within. It involves the Luciferian break with the top-heavy Indo-European symbolism of human growth seen as a ladder. Instead is introduced the symbolism of the embryo and the circle. It involves my concepts of being a philosophical globetrotter, life artist and idler. I campaign against the work ethics and promote liberty, autonomy and responsibility; in reality: the fine art of doing nothing. In this I take an anarchic approach to the...

The main manifest of fascistic feminism is the so-called SCUM Manifesto, written by Valerie Solanas. Solanas was a radical feminist, and she claimed something, which fundamentally seen is the same as what was said about Aryan physics and Jewish physics in Hitler´s Germany: since women have two x-chromosomes, where men have one x- and one y-chromosome, then the female perception, thinking and picture of the world et cetera, are different from, and truer, than the masculine.

Atheist fundamentalism is advanced by a group of thinkers and writers who advocate the view that superstition, religion and irrationalism should not simply be tolerated but should be countered, criticized, and exposed by rational argument wherever their influence arises in government, education, and politics. Atheist fundamentalism is especially represented by four prominent atheists: Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens and Daniel Dennett. In this booklet I will show...

Plastic shamanism is a pejorative colloquialism applied to individuals who are attempting to pass themselves off as shamans, holy people, or other traditional spiritual leaders, but who have no genuine connection to the traditions or cultures they claim to represent. In this booklet I will show how plastic shamanism has its root in the American anthropologist Michael Harner´s concept of core shamanism. I will investigate the problem of cultural appropriation, and on a broader scale: the...

David Jay Brown is an American writer, who is an advocate of using psychedelics in connection with therapy and lucid dreaming. He could be said to be a present day advocate of the psychedelic renaissance. My main goal with this booklet is to make aware of his confusion of spirituality and psychedelics. This is a common confusion, and the booklet is therefore not only about Brown, but about the thoughts behind the psychedelic renaissance as such. These thoughts could be gathered under the term...

Today we are witnessing a renaissance of the proposal of using psychedelics in connection with spiritual practice. In this booklet I will give a warning against this by seeing the difference between genuine mystical experiences and psychedelic experiences. I will look at the real Kundalini experiences of the American author Christina Grof, and the LSD induced experiences of her husband, the psychiatrist Stanislav Grof. I will furthermore see this in relation to the real Kundalini experiences of...

The question What is consciousness? is about one of the central problems of philosophy, maybe even the central philosophical problem. It is about the human nature. Who am I? What is the I, the subject? What is its ontological status? Wherein does its identity consist? How is its role in connection with the question of personal identity or rather the criteria for personal identity? It is a problem which is related to a number of other philosophical problems, for example the psycho-physical...

In this Ebook I will show how New Age is building on Western Idealism, a monistic metaphysical doctrine which claims that only minds and mental contents exist. Complete subjectivity. From this doctrine New Age has created the idea that you can create your own reality from your thoughts or mind alone. New Age often seek to justify this by using the Eastern concept of Maya, which means illusion. Illusion is the reality others have created and which you are a slave of. Instead you should create...

Evolutionism was created in the 19th century, but the background is to be found in the Renaissance, not least in the scientific breakthrough from approximately 1550 onwards. It is is an ideology which we still celebrate in the Western world. We find it natural to talk about progress, development, growth, renewal, innovation, visions, whether it's economic, political, social conditions, spiritual - and also when it comes to art. It is a linear view of history where it is about being constantly...

Over the past decade, Scientology’s bizarre belief systems have become a matter of public record. Given all the controversy and pop culture jokes, it can be difficult to come up with a frame of reference to understand why the controversial organization has managed to survive for so long. In this Ebook I will reveal a quite special explanation, namely that Scientology is a role-playing game! The concept of games is embedded in the very fabric of Scientology’s worldview.

In this Ebook I will explain Karen Blixen´s mysterious relationship with Lucifer. I will show that it has to do with the mystical experience. In many ways Blixen´s work and life is a rebellion against the mediocre Christianity, which tried to clip her wings as a child. In her works this comes to expression in her “counter-stories”, for example when she reverses Kierkegaard´s three stages on the way to becoming a true self: the aesthetic, the ethical, and the religious. The mystical...

This book is not an academical treatise dealing exclusively with Tolkien´s philosophy. It is book about how I use Tolkien in connection with philosophical counseling in Rold Forest  in Denmark, and is in that way as much a summary of my own philosophy.  In the book I claim that Sauron´s One Ring has two demonical movements which are seen in our culture of today: the movement into the ego (the will to power), and the movement out towards the others in ideology. Hereby the Truth, Beauty and...

This is revealed when we guess that the Devil´s proper name is Lucifer Morningstar, which means Bringer of Light. We hear about the Devil´s double incarnation in the pain-bodies of Dracula and Mina. In the search for the unification of their love we undertake a Hero´s Journey through the Earth-Moon Kingdom...

“Sûnyatâ” means emptiness. The concept involves especially three other concepts: negation, codependent origination and impermanence. The Sûnyatâ philosophy is a teaching, which has one quite determinate purpose: the neutralization of all the dogmas, theories and viewpoints, which ignorance has created. And what does “Sutras” mean then? The oldest form of spiritual scriptures, as for example the old Indian Sutras, are intended for meditative reading. Sutras are effective hints to the...

This book is the second part of two books on the concept of The Matrix Conspiracy. The Matrix conspiracy is a mix of postmodern intellectualism, management theory, self-help and New Age, which together constitute a global spreading ideology. This ideology is created by The Mythology of Authenticity – a mythology where everything is about becoming and not being. This mythology has two world images: humanistic psychology and constructivism. And these two world images again have two methods:...

This book is the first part of two books on the concept of The Matrix Conspiracy. Morten Tolboll uses the term in order to describe the outbreak of a culture of self-assertion, where the classical deadly sins have been turned into virtues. The Matrix Conspiracy is a mixture of postmodern intellectualism, management theory, self-help and New Age, which is creating a “me-me-me-and-then-perhaps-you-if-it-serves-me-logic”, and a spirituality, where the object of worship is the ego. It is a...

Thought distortions are “techniques”, that, unconsciuos or conscious, are used from an interest in finding ways of getting on in the world, rather than an interest in finding ways of discovering the truth. Thought distortions are the background for poor reasoning, diversionary ploys, seductive reasoning errors, techniques of persuasion and avoidance, psychological factors, which can be obstacles to clear thought. The question is: should one use thought distortions? The question raises the...

This book is the last in a series of three about Morten Tolboll´s teaching, Meditation as an Art of Life. The first book was named Meditation as an Art of Life – a basic reader. The second was named Dream Yoga. The first book is the basic reader on asking philosophical question in a meditative-existential way, and the systematical instruction in the belonging supporting exercises. The second book is about about how to - through critical thinking – navigate through the dream-labyrinth of...

The spiritual practice consists of meditation and dream yoga. Meditation and dream yoga are two sides of the same thing. If you nevertheless should try to discriminate, then you about meditation can say, that the three aspects of meditation are relaxfullness, awareness and heartfullness. Dream Yoga is shortly said about realizing the illusory aspect of life and death. Normally Dream Yoga is understood as practising meditation during sleep, about realizing the illusory aspects of dreams, and...

The background for this book is the spiritual crisis, Morten Tolboll lived through because of inappropriate consequences of yoga and meditation. Viewed against this background he started to look at meditation as an art of life. Tolboll believes, that meditation isn't some kind of mental visualizing technique, but something philosophical, an art of life, which involves the entire cognitional, existential and ethical reality of Man. Moreover that this concept of meditation is the central core in...

John Rosen, a professor in psychiatry, who had been analysed but never trained as a psychoanalyst, originally professed in 1947 that his new method, which he called “direct analysis,” led to schizophrenic patients “recovering” and having their “psychosis resolved.” Claiming that his patients had not been loved during childhood, Rosen reported spending sometimes as much as ten hours a day with one patient. What was eventually revealed about what went on in those sessions is almost...

People whose lives center on destroying other people's lives by disempowering them, who reduce their victims to dependent subjects to be lorded over, have been called spiritual vampires. Some of the therapists, ministers and gurus I've written about elsewhere in my articles and books could be called spiritual vampires, very aptly. In this article I try to describe the philosophical mechanisms under the thoughts, that create a spiritual vampire.

The tendency to connect things and create plausible narratives out of partially fictious items is called Confabulation. A confabulation is a fantasy that has unconsciously replaced events in memory. A confabulation may be based partly on fact or be a complete construction of the imagination. In our time with the spreading of subjectivism and relativism - and therefore Magical thinking - we are seeing how Confabulation somehow gets a justification.

The oldest form of spiritual scriptures, as for example the old Indian Sutras, are intended for meditative reading. Sutras are effective hints to...

Spiritual crises are not due to mental disease, but are manifestations of time and its more collective images; that is: the collective history of the astral plane. These manifestations are often accompanied by some deep and powerful energies (or forms of energy), which penetrate the whole of your being.

You can´t dissolve or dilute or convert the original sin through therapy. Only the intervention of the Source (God, Christ, the enlightened consciousness) can basically help Man with a transcendence of the negative karma of the original sin.

Religion has to do with the pious attitude and way of thinking, which stands for the observance of religious virtues, duties and...

Regression psychotherapies are based on the notion that if you discover the cause of your troubles you will be cured. It is causes such as inadequate parents, sexual abuse, satanic rituals, cannibalistic orgies, past lives, alien abduction, possession by entities, etc. The theory is then to regress people back to these incidents and having them to relive, or re-experience them.

Our wonder over Man becomes philosophy, when it reaches the question of Man as such. Philosophy throws out answers to the question, argues for the answers and investigates their consequences. This happens first of all by reflecting and meditating over the things, not in an experience-scientific way, or by using theories as starting point.

Kundalini is a concept in Indian philosophy. According to Tantrism it is a latent spiritual power, which is situated in the bottom of the spinal column, behind the sexual organs. Symbolic it is seen as a slumbering, rolled serpent. The serpent can be awakened; that is: the spiritual energy can be released, normally through a special yoga technique. These ideas belong to an “upward” meditation tradition. In this article I present a “downward” meditative alternative.
